Former Alabama governors agree: prosecutors' 'absolute immunity' should end absolutely.
The right to frame innocent people SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED
OT: little Stuart Rhodes is about to start paying for his idiocy.
To be held responsible and be subject to consequences needs be the original foundation of justice. It must apply to every individual in the administration of the law. No exemptions allowed.
But yeah, there's definitely no systemic injustice...
Realistically, most Americans probably don't really give a crap about wrongful convictions, especially right now with the fervor for "tough on crime" policies and politicians.
Realistically, both "law" and "order" are so fucking broken in this country that it's getting hard to blame people for feeling that way. On the "law" side, I really don't need to comment about the increasing national frustration at seeing rich white men commit endless crimes with impunity. On the "order" side, the persistence and worsening of the homeless problem is turning even good California and New York liberals into unquestioning and vengeful law-and-order freaks.
Police officer is one of the highest paying jobs a clown college graduate can expect to get in this company country. Only complete Bozos with a double major in hosing get to be state prosecutors.
Robyn, you should edit this post to make it clear that the man pictured is former Governor Robert Bentley, one of the two men who have the moral high ground here in admitting past error in order to call out these heinous practices. Left unlabelled, someone might think that he's one of the crooked prosecutors.
“In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two groups who are separate yet both completely fucking unaccountable to the people.“ DUN DUN!
Where does it say that in the Constitution? Asking for a friend.
Second Amendment, no?
